Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Prudence, the music Genie...

Hey Now - I watch the Noggin channel w/ my kids and really love Jack's Big Music Show.

In today's episode, Jack, Mary and their dog Mel find a magic horn. When Mel blows the horn, Prudence the Music Genie appears. After a rockin' intro, she offers to grant 3 music wishes. Which got me thinkin'....What would MY music wish be? AND, what would YOUR music wish be?

Not sure what the weather was like, but a trip back in time to Golden Gate Park/Kezar Stadium on 5/26/1973 sounds awfully good to me. Hopefully a sunny day. A LONG day of music and new friends.

What's your music wish?

In the words of Charles Emerson Winchester III, "I can play the notes, but I cannot make the music."

Just once to be able to tap into whatever Jerry, Jimi and SRV could and make that music.

To be at the first performance of Beethoven's Ninth symphony - to see the totally deaf Beethoven, who was conducting, having to be turned around by one of the singers so he could see the audience applauding wildly...

How about being in the riot for the premiere of Stavinsky's Le Sacre du printemps in Paris? OK, maybe not . . .

Being an incredibly bad guitar player, my dream would be to be able to enter Jerry's body or Clapton or Allman or any other guitar hero and feel what it's like to be in their shoes when they were on stage at the top of their game!

Dear Prudence (Genie)

Please take me to Evan's Fieldhouse, DeKalb, Illinois, 10/29/1977...

...and to Max Yasgur's farm in Woodstock in 1969...

...and to the Village Vanguard in November of 1961 to see and hear Coltrane jam.

Thank you.

Along these lines, I'll toss in another vote for the premiere of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. Not sure of the exact date, but it would have been sometime in 1725 in Amsterdam (The original "Jam in the Dam", perhaps?)

Yeah! - how sweet would that have been. Throw that in with Corelli's Concerto Grossi or Bach's Brandenburh Concerto's.......

Would definately like to see the Dead at one of those legendary Fillmore shows.

Would also like to see the Dead at one of those legendary Winterland shows.

Checkerboard Lounge, Chicago, on a night when Muddy really got his mojo workin'

Some little juke joint in Mississippi with Robert Johnson playing the blues after he visited the crossroads (yeah, I know it's a myth, but by all reports, the man reappeared after being MIA with a whole new power and ability and just smoked!)

Standing on that NYC bridge listening to Sonny Rollins blow

First of all I was home with my sick two year old today and saw the same episode. For what it's worth that show isn't half bad.(for those of you without kids that is saying alot) I guess my wish would be to see Hendrix in his early club days in NYC before he was signed. When I was watching that earlier I never would have dreamed it would have related to something I would do later in the day. What a strange world. Love it though.

LOL. Thanks Hazell. Glad you saw it too. Yes, I like that show. Have you seen the King of Swing episode? It totally rocks!

The studio during recording of "Comfortably Numb", specifically Gilmour's solo. If the energy that comes through on the disc is that powerful, the feeling in that room would have to be mind blowing. On top of that, they fade out during the solo and I would like to have heard the entire explosion.
That or the first time Charlie Parker and Miles Davis played live together (along with Dizzie Gillespie) in 1944.
